I am 23 years old and went to Bocas del Toro with my girlfriend and two other couples. My girlfriend and I as well as one other couple stayed in the "Ocean View Penthouse", and another couple we were with stayed in the "Starfish Suite". The "Ocean View Penthouse" was awesome! It was very spacious, cleaned on a daily basis...

Great little hotel (and arguably the fanciest) in Bocas Town. We had the starfish suite and it was fun: porthole to see the water below, clean bathroom with a huge shower, spic and span surroundings throughout the hotel. There are a lot of backpacker-type accommodations in town that aren't necessarily the cleanest. This place is a great compromise if you...

Found the Tropical Suites to be a great place to stay and relax in Bocas del Toro. Situated on the Island of Isle de Colon, the location was perfect to enjoy the small town, its restaurants and tours. The hotel was exceptionally clean, the staff was exceptional and knowledgeable.

Very nice and modern hotel option in Bocas Town. Good maid service and cleaning, nice rooms and a location on the main street but slightly off from the busiest nightlife makes for a central but still relatively quiet hotel. Lies on the water and has a dock of its own which is good both for taking water taxis but also...

We had the great fortune of staying at the Tropical Suites in Bocas. The service was exceptional. There was some error on our room arrangements when we arrived, so they upgrade all 5 of us to the 3 Bedroom Penthouse overlooking the water. It truly was the most awesome view and room we have ever stayed at. We would HIGHLY...

This hotel is in a great location and in the heart of the action in Bocas town. You pay a premium for the water frontage, but it is worth it. We made a big mistake by arriving in Bocas and thinking we would get a better rate directly at the hotel. I discovered later that we paid USD60 more than...

Hello J P, We appreciate your review and are pleased that you enjoyed our hotel's central location and water view rooms. Our online rates can change due to market demand and there may be a minor disparity between the different channels, including walk in rates, on certain occasions. We certainly do our best to work with guests on a case...

Located near the end of the main street. Quiet, but convenient to everything. The room was really quite deluxe, with a delightful king size pillow-top bed that was pure heaven. AC worked great, and the room was very quiet, so our 3 nights there were by far the the best nights sleep we had on our entire 2-month vacation. We...
